Where I've BeenAs a person that loves lists, this has got to be my ultimate. A list of all of the wonderful places I have been to, along with how long I have spent there in total. What a geek right?

This list reminds me of the epic journey I have taken in the past sixteen years since I started travelling, and it gets me excited about what the future holds, travel-wise, as well.

It isn’t my desire to visit every country in the world, but there are still so many places I want to experience and many more that I will return to.

As of March 2020, I have been to 64 countries (78 for the Traveler’s Century Club), including 7 Canadian Provinces, 42 US States and 38 US National Parks.

It’s definitely been an adventure so far!

  1. Tell me about Egypt! I lived there for 3 months and taught English, and I’m always curious what other people think of it, especially foreign women. I loved it, but it was a relationship that took time to grow…

    • Hi Jesse, I only spent 16 days in Egypt and I was on a tour as I wasn’t comfortable travelling there by myself. I was shocked by the pollution but loved visiting the ancient sites and diving in Dahab. I did struggle a bit with the constant hassles from Egyptian men, especially in Luxor, but I didn’t have any scary or overly aggressive experiences
